his name is Eli

sometimes there is just too much happening in the world
too much on the news
too much to do..

i find that i recall those old women who told me 
"sleep when they sleep.."
"leave the dishes for a while.." 

and i want those days back

they were simple, and sweet, and saving
they were the minutes i felt truly alive.

motherhood has been the most amazingly frightening experience
i sure hope i'm not done just yet..
